Healthy eating at its finest. This easy recipe offers a guilt-free spin on Traditional Italian Chicken Parmesan.
This will definitely be one of the most delicious meals you eat served up in only 30 minutes. The chicken is coated with a combination of flax, breadcrumbs and delicious spices, then baked and smothered in a spicy tomato sauce topped with melted mozzarella cheese.

Can I pre-prep my Chicken Parmesan?
Absolutely! If you’re in need of a meal that can be prepped ahead, yet still has an attractive presentation once served, this is it! Follow the prep instructions (stop just before baking), cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove from fridge, bake and voila ~ the best of Italy served right at your dinner table.
Ways to reinvent your leftovers:
- Leftover chicken parm in a toasted hoagie roll
- Quesadilla style in a wrap
- Chicken parm stuffed peppers: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut off top of bell peppers and remove seeds and membranes. Fill a baking dish just large enough to fit peppers with about 1/4-inch of water. Place peppers upside down in water, cover tightly with foil or bake 20 minutes. While peppers are baking, chop leftover chicken parm into bite-size pieces and mix with additional marinara sauce and whatever else you prefer. (We often add a little cooked farro and any leftover veggies that need to be used up from the fridge). Remove peppers from oven, drain excess water, stand peppers upright and stuff them with chicken mixture. Pour additional marinara sauce over peppers. Cover tightly with foil. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Return to oven and bake until peppers have reached desired tenderness, about 15–20 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese, parsley and serve warm.
